oh i see...  my mistake.  :)

how do you workaround the "installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found"
error related to the .pyo/.pyc files?  i noticed it's a python bug as
well as a redhat bug.

ps -
the original reason i went down the rabbit hole of --optimization 0
and --no-compile was that i was trying to get around the installed but
unpackaged files error.  my thought was that if i could prevent the
creation of the .pyc and .pyo files then i could avoid the rpmbuild
